The PUBLIC M7i is our modern take on the classic French mixte bike design. Popular with women and men alike, the stylish and functional step-over mixte design is equally at home hauling baguettes and brie from your local market as it is on a speedy cross-town commute. We humbly think it's the best mixte bike you'll find. Updated with a lightweight, high quality steel frame, and incorporating all the best features from both the PUBLIC C7i and V7i, such as the smooth, easy shifting of the internally geared 7 speed hub and strong modern alloy rims; the PUBLIC M7i mixte is a capable and classy bicycle perfect for city bike commuters and country road adventures alike.
What truly makes the PUBLIC M7i one of the best mixte bikes on the market is the easy shifting Shimano Nexus 7 speed internally geared rear hub. This robust, durable and low maintenance shifting system makes changing gears a breeze, and allows the rider to select the ideal gear whether pedaling quickly or at a full stop. This feature is particularly helpful when pedaling around town, where stop-and-go riding is common. In addition to the upgraded and simplified drivetrain, the PUBLIC M7i mixte receives our strongest double walled alloy rims, which provide years of trouble free service, even over the roughest pavement.
In keeping with our love for simple, clean and functional bicycles, the PUBLIC M7i mixte includes everything you need and nothing you don't. In addition to the smooth shifting Shimano Nexus 7 speed hub, the PUBLIC M7i mixte comes standard with powerful modern dual pivot brakes to ensure safe and reliable braking in all conditions. Also standard on all PUBLIC M7i mixte bikes are tires with 3M reflective sidewalls to provide additional visibility and safety at night.
We designed the PUBLIC M7i in response to customer requests for a high quality, stylish and fun, internally geared city bike that was easy to get on and off of and retained the sportier handling characteristics of our diamond frame bikes.
